9. I remain convinced that our rising social strife (racial or otherwise) is rooted in economics

We are the mice that have fallen into the bucket trap, viciously fighting and climbing over each other as we try to keep our heads above water.

All the growth has gone to those at the top, the rest of us are fighting for the same amount of pie, divided across more and more mouths. In rage and frustration, too many drift to extremes. They blame and attack their fellow victims, wrongly blaming them based on what differences they can perceive - race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, cultural values.

Wages are not keeping up, and our societal infighting is escalating. We need to fix the system so that growth goes first and foremost to the masses; the 90% before the 1%. Remove the financial desperation and despair, and I believe you will begin draining the hate.
